Infineon Technologies AG has introduced the TenGiPHY-L and TenGiPHY-W 10GbE XAUI-to-serial transceivers to address the needs of the 10GbE LAN and WAN markets, respectively.

Both single chip 10GbE transceivers are implemented in pure CMOS with XAUI and 10Gb interface, and can be used as universal 10GbE LAN or WAN PHY devices. They are targeted for use within XENPAK or XPAK fiber optic modules, as well as in 10GbE line cards, LAN/MAN Ethernet backbones, storage NICs, and Terabit routers.

"Manufactured in standard 0.135m CMOS technology, the TenGiPHY provides fiber optic module vendors with minimum power and size by integrating the highest level of PHY layer functionality and additional "smart" features into a single transceiver IC," said Ayad Abul-Ella, Product Line Director, Optical Networking Business Unit.

"Incorporating a microcontroller, ADCs and DACs converters in combination with their respective algorithms, the TenGiPHY offers our customers numerous options to reduce their module manufacturing and field maintenance costs," he added.

The TenGiPHY devices provide serial 10Gbps interface to an optical sub-module. The integrated CDR and CMU operate at data rates of 10.3125Gbps and 9.95328Gbps, while the quad serial XAUI interface provides four 3.125Gbps channels, and includes transmit pre-emphasis and 8B/10B coding.

Both transceivers incorporate the XGXS, PCS and PMA sub layers of the 10GbE standard. The TenGiPHY-W also includes a complete STS-192c/VC-4-64c SONET/SDH framer for direct connection to the public network.

The TenGiPHY-L and TenGiPHY-W devices are packaged in a 15-by-15mm BGA casing and consume <1.3W of power.
